My very talented and very good friend Gillian BenAry worked patiently with me as we sussed out the design for the new album. I am honored and humbled to have her as a part if the project and am looking forward to working with her again. Check out her blog and get a sense for her wonderful work here!

We’ve been invited to perform as the featured act at the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton! http://www.firehousearts.org/
Next Thursday, August 21st
4444 Railroad Ave, Pleasanton, CA 94566
We will be going on at about 7:30pm but make sure to get there a bit early for a good seat and to check out some of the local talent.
This gig is particularly special because I’ll be bringing the whole band! That’s right, I’ve got a drummer, a bass player, a lead guitar and (of COURSE) the fabulous Ryan Avery on violin. We’re taking the Lamborghini out for a spin. I’ve never driven a manual before! Will we win the title or crash and burn? YOU decide! Either way, it’ll be a blast.
Mark your calendars and muddy your tires!
For all you lovley people who are just discovering my blog, music, musings, works-in-progress,
I’ve been contributing to a Bay Area, female-focused blog site called Silicon Valley Tales. This site is primarily focused on sharing the perspectives of women surviving in or around Silicon Valley. All of the posts are contributed by ladies from all over the San Francisco Bay Area and are as diverse and insightful as the women themselves. I’m honored and stoked to be a contributing member and hope my additions bring a unique perspective to our vibrant community.
My latest contribution is the first in what will hopefully be a series of interviews of Bay Area music makers. I’ll speak with singers, songwriters, band leaders and music professionals in the hopes of bringing a greater sense of familiarity to the vibrant and inspiring musical community that is always hard at work right here in our own back yard.
Please read, enjoy and share!
Here’s the second installment of our video series! It’s also an original tune that will be featured on the forthcoming album Weeds & Wildflowers.
Have a listen, tell me what you think and please, share with your friends!
Ryan and I are pledging to give you music for your earholes and eyeholes once a week, every week until the forces of nature make me a liar. But even that will only be temporary(maybe). Hopefully, with practice, these videos will become more and more solid and start to include some of our talented and generous friends. Maybe even YOU can help out! If you want(pleeeease!).
Here be the first installment! It’s one of my favorite songs to perform. Please, enjoy and share to your hearts delight!
Our next live performance will be at Harbin Hot Springs on May 24th. Come up to enjoy the pools during the day. In the evening, we will perform your faces off!
ALSO! The next Emily Zisman album, Weeds & Wildflowers is headed to the presses! We are sooooo close.
Until then, enjoy the videos!
Back here, on the beach
where we fed chicken bones to the seagulls.
Where we made love and set fires and
got stoned among the dunes.
Fished hermit crabs out of
seawater and fed them to the anemone.
We were teenagers.
We were assholes.
but we were free.
Mark your calendars for Friday, March 21st! We are excited to be sharing some original tunes at the famous Bazaar Café on California Street in San Francisco.
5927 California St, San Francisco, CA 94121
Check out the digs and the eats: http://www.bazaarcafe.com/
In a rare, acoustic appearance, Ryan and I will be trading off half hour sets with the insanely talented Mr. Marty Atkinson.
He’ll be joining us, we’ll be joining him….We will aim to jam your face off. OFF!!
You can tell us whether or not we succeeded at the end of the show.
Show starts at 7:30pm but make sure to get there early as it’s a fairly small room with limited seating. We will sing you songs until about 9:30pm, so plan to tuck in!
There will be some new songs, some old songs and a pant-load of excitement building around the upcoming release of the second Emily Zisman album.
Come! See us! We miss you so.
